Mission Statement

The Texas Silver-Haired Legislature provides senior citizens an opportunity to become directly involved in the legislative process. Here a forum for older citizens has been established to debate issues and establish priorities based on the result of these discussions.

Advocacy training is provided, enabling delegates to offer informed assistance on such policy matters. Our advocacy training also gives support to older citizens and private sectors, boards, and commissions.

Our vision is that the applied wisdom, energy, and experience of aging will improve the lives of Texans through education, knowledge, and involvement in legislation and governmental affairs.
